  1. Past hour
  2. They worth what you value them, that's the only important thing ! I'm pretty sure they are all interesting with a bit of history attached to them, either history by what they are or history by how you got them
  3. I found this watch mentioned on another site and thought others might want to see it too... The first one released was apparently called the Independent Watch Diver one and for some reason the second model was released as Island Watch Diver Two (Maybe IWC didn't agree?). Both models are under $200 including PP fees and shipping from Taiwan. Some actual pics....
  4. I bought 2 and had no issues. Mine have been flawless. PM me if you want my other one. I tried to sell it here but no luck.
  5. F*ck! My excuse for not buying more watches is that I have no where else to keep them. This gives me a perfect place to put more watches. Good work. Looks really, really good. Well done
  6. The new ARF A4130 Yellow Gold Basel Daytona

    Beautiful watch - Ive just decided after reading this thread that I want one myself. Wear it in good health my friend.
  7. Today
  8. Tell me about the Sharkey SBDX001! I've been trying to get info on it but even legendwatch won't get back to me lol. I know they had some QC issues when they were first released and then haven't heard anything since...
  9. Congrats, this cabinet is a clever way to save money for serious watch collectors. And with room to store them free watch catalogues & books in bottom drawers if you have less than 200 watches It can also be wheeled out of sight when nosy relatives come over. Well done.
  10. Nothing worth a whole lot really. The Timex stuff I picked up for $10 to $50, which include swapping out the strap. I've been pretty lucky finding vintage stuff on ebay. I hit UK, US and Canada ebay looking for unique ones that are cheap. I've only had 3 out of 60 arrive D.O.A. and every seller gave me an immediate refund. I have a BelAir headed back to a seller to reattach the second hand. The case is gold plated and was hideous, but a little cape cod and she was absolutely gorgeous. There just a lot of fun. I've got some Swiss, British, Indian, Soviet and Chinese handwinders too, again all under $50. Lots and lots of reps of course and then about 35 watches from some upstarts like Helgray and Vratislavia that I really like. Outside of Timex, my gen's are mostly Seiko and the new microbrands, but I do have 2 Hamiltons that I'm very fond of.
  11. TAG Heuer Pendulum strap replacement

    Bump I have the EXACT same issue.
  12. You forgot to tell your opening hours, do you take group visits ? Nice project for your awesome collection !
  13. Hopefully no one gets the disease as bad as I have it right now. I will be letting some go soon (says every addict) for sure. Here's a step by step build for storing 200+ watches. Recipe: 2 Halifax 7 drawer cabinets - $80 apiece if you catch them on sale @ Amazon Link -> https://www.amazon.com/Winsome-Halifax-Cabinet-Closet-Drawers/dp/B006WYUR10/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1512949095&sr=8-2&keywords=black+halifax+cabinet Closed cell foam - $34 also from Amazon Link -> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015JRXH1W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 6 - 18ct. watch trays from Jewelry Supply - $12.74 apiece (they were ~$11 when I bought mine) Link -> https://www.jewelrysupply.com/Black-Velvet-Lined-Watch-Display-Tray_p_2493.html 6 - 12ct. watch trays from Walmart - $24.95 apiece Link -> https://www.walmart.com/ip/Watch-Tray-Display-Storage-for-Watches-Black-Velvet-Home-Closet-Dresser-Safe/886639606?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=4299&adid=22222222227064582038&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=169500957968&wl4=aud-310687322322:pla-275956941003&wl5=9009617&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=113548480&wl11=online&wl12=886639606&wl13=&veh=sem 2 - 24ct. watch cases, ebay - $30 apiece (no link as the sellers come and go quite frequently GRAND TOTAL = ~$400 after a few link through rebates and using my Discover Card Putting together the 2 cabinets is the hardest part really. It'll take most people 2 hours total, just a lot of assembly there. Here was my poor watches sitting on towels until my trays arrived. No bueno. Filling the trays was no issue, but now the trays were rattling around in the drawer. Still, no bueno. The closed cell foam was super easy to work with. I had a metal square and a long razor knife. This stuff is really forgiving. The best part was the foam's width was EXACTLY the width of the drawer. Larger blocks push the trays all the way forward in the drawer. Smaller pieces line each side and hold them in place tightly. How tightly? I miscut a piece and tried to pull the tray out...no bueno. Had to use a screw driver to get the foam out. LOL Just a little bit of foam leftover:
  14. Identify this watch

    Better than ong-bak [emoji6]
  15. Yesterday
  16. Identify this watch

    Anything like Ung Boc? Then, sorry, I'll pass, thanks. No offense.
  17. Panerai, PAM684, XF vs. ZF

    When I asked Andrew at TT the same question he said the XF/V6 factory were the better of the 2. Didn't really expand on why so I went with the V6 version P9010.

    You can lead a horse to water Rush...

    I hope if they find out their attorney or doctor isn’t qualified they just keep seeing them even after they don’t get the correct qualifications. That is what they’re doing with Mickey.
  20. It's been just over a year so far .....

    Thanks for the comments folks, much appreciate it. The Breguet I haven't considered but having a quick look they are indeed nice. A Rolex Daytona is on the list for sure. I don't want a seconds at 6 7750 time bomb though. If they don't come out with that 'new' movement in 2018 for the Daytona I will likely get a JF ice-blue dial faux chrono (gen thickness) a23J movement model. Some of the Maurice & Lacroix are sure nice but perhaps on the large side from what I 've seen. There are endless options for sure. Awesome !
  21. Ssteel - RepGeek - Are you buying this?

    So is asking someone (who has had multiple sock accounts) if they had a sock account. Go figure Good luck with the second chances and the hoped for rehabilitation...
  22. Ssteel - RepGeek - Are you buying this?

    ooohh ... more Micky drama. What a complete cunt. Must be a Turkey holiday shortfall
  23. Ssteel - RepGeek - Are you buying this?

    I would mostly agree with them on forgiveness, second chance and all of that, only if there wasn't evidence that the guy continues his bullshitting, his recent sale thread on RG is a proof or am I searching too far and being a nitpick ? Once bitten, twice shy... I guess
  24. Ssteel - RepGeek - Are you buying this?

    Pointing out that people are lying about why they were banned is now described as a witch hunt and anyone that believes people should be banned for malfeasance is now medieval since modern societies have gotten rid of this sort of thing a long time ago....
  25. I'Il go with the 1979, 17 jewel.
  26. One of these vintage Timex handwinders.
